Hello Echo Base,



I am posting in every base concerning each bases logo for trading cards and other promotional Rebel Legion needs.



Firstly I will need to know if there is a vector logo for your base and if so if I can get that.



If you do not have a vector logo, I am volunteering my time to actually do this for the bases without means to have this done. Any concerns that crop up because of it will be discussed and decided on by the base itself.



Why vector logos?



Vector logos allow for the unique lee way and option to scale the logo from 1" to 1000" and everywhere in between.



It will be easy for anything we do, and it will always be clean, precise, and allow for colour continuity.



Please post if you have a vector logo or not, and we will go from there.



Thanks guys!

I can pretty much say we do not have one for Echo Base. I know when I was base CO, we didn't have one. Just the image linked above.

Does anyone have a higher res version then this: http://www.rebellegion.com/images/logos/base1lg.jpg



We had a huge Echo Base logo on the hooded sweatshirts from way back when, but I think Mookie handled that project? (and  we don't have Mookie as a member anymore).

Justin is going to handle all the bases that are posting responses like "What's a vector "  If we have the talent with time and software available in Echo Base to make our own, then we should do so.

I have zero problems helping Echo Base, being such a close and great neighbour, and its a challenging logo.



I want to help where I can Smile

We are seeing if we can obtain any higher res image of the logo. Looks like the snowspeeder came from something like this? http://www.hitl.washington.edu/people/tfurness/courses/inde599_sp01/snowspeeder.jpg


Anyone have a larger version or an original in a book or something that can be scanned?

Based on my own search, I believe that this may be the original artwork for the Snowspeeder graphic used in the logo:



http://www.freeinfosociety.com/coppermine/albums/userpics/10174/rebel_snowspeeder.jpg

(notice the grey shading)





Below is the same image, just cropped differently



http://www.frazmtn.com/~punstr/blueprint/sspeeder.gif

http://images.suave.net/cgi-bin/im/~dave/images/snowspeedertolego.gif





Does anyone know the history of the logo?

i.e. who did the initial design?

That's part of the plan. If we have a clean vector based logo it can be used for



  • New Website
  • RL Series 2 Trading Cards
  • Patches
  • Tee Shirts
  • Sig files
  • etc.

Alright thanks guys! I will use that, even though it shall take for ever Razz Hooray for symmetry.



Would you guys also like a simplified version to suppliment the logo for smaller jobs where the detail is lost anyway, like the sig banners, but also so you can see some definition?

Since on the new website/forum, the logo will show up in the forum listing at 60 x60 pixels:Echo Base


Having a 2nd logo that  has no text and a more graphic/simpler version of the snow speeder would be a good thing to have.  So I would say yes.


You can almost see the details in the logo when it's sig file/banner sized, but the details get all muddy at 60x60.

Justin - are you familiar with "Live Trace" in Illustrator CS2?

I agree that this will take some time to do (even with Live Trace, as a lot of cleanup can be done).
